. with respect to who carried it out, that's an ongoing investigation. the fbi had sent individuals to libya repeatedly. we have some very good leads, but this is not something that, you know, i'm going to be at liberty to talk about right now. >> megyn: well, that was president obama roughly ten days ago discussing the terror attack in libya that killed four americans, almost four months ago now, including our ambassador. yesterday we learned the one and only suspect in custody so far has just been released by tunisian authorities citing a lack of evidence against him. so, where exactly are we in our fight for justice against the terrorists who killed our ambassador and three others? virginia congressman frank wolf is a republican and a member of the house appropriations committee. you're upset among other things, that this country, tunisia that released our one and only suspect got 300 plus million in aid, why are we funneling aid to them. >> we should not be and they're about to become a millennium and means advantages. we should be cutting off the aid. the fbi team was there for five wee

but remained on the f.b.i.'s radar. he was extradited last week when his name surfaced into an investigation on a suicide bombing attack on the new york subway system that failed to be pulled off. he is the 8th defendant to face charges in brooklyn for the failed subway plot. you may remember one of his alleged coconspirators who pled guilty back in 2010. he and others were communicating with a shado shadowy al-qaida member. they were e-mailing phrases, such as marriage. he was stopped and the plot was foiled. nasir was using the name language as zazi while communicating with this guy in pack sthapb and was part of this kpheur to commit multiple terrorist attacks and that's why the u.s. attorney in the u.s. was able tow prosecute him. that first appearance scheduled about two hours from now. jenna we'll look forward to developments on that case. thank you. jon: a big take down for the f.b.i. to tell you about. federal agents scratching a name off their most wanted list, after this man is arrested on the other side of the world. details on the bust and his alleged crimes coming up. plus, heav
and oil and rigged containers to explode. james holmes' apartment is at the top and according to an fbi bob technician, he said that holmes told him that he took a boom box and remote control car and placed it outside of a garage car. he said there was a cd that he made. the first 40 minutes was silent to timed out to start playing very loud music. holmes hoped that somebody would come over to that trash bag and then see the remote control car and start playing with it. except that remote control was was not triggered to move the car. it was triggered to set off a device inside the apartment and that would trigger a much larger explosion. according to the fbi bomb technician, james holmes planned to have his apartment explode to distract and overwhelm first responders and he would walk into the theater a few miles away and start shooting. it's the kind of elaborate diabolical plot that seems to work for villains in a batman movie but in real life this diabolical part of the plan didn't work. and, wolf, investigators also testified today that in the month leading up to the shooting james
is west of libya. the attack killed chris stevens and three other americans. the fbi reportedly questioned the 26-year-old suspect just last month. but a judge in tunisia ruled that there is not enough evidence to continue to hold him him. we have team fox coverage tonight. james rosen is with us from the state department. first "the fox report's" correspondent jonathan hunt is live tonight as well. jonathan, the state department officials clearly did not want to talk about this today. >> yeah did, not want to talk about it at all. victoria new land is a spokeswoman for the state department. she held what is known as the daily briefing today, shep. she was peppered with questions about the release of him in tunisia. she said it was simply not a matter for the state department to comment on. listen. >> the president has committed that we will see justice in this case. we have confidence that we will see justice in this case. but the fbi has the lead. they have to do this right. it is their business we support them in that business. i will send you to them on the status of the case. >> we di
by the fbi and i cia couldn't get the results of the interview because they are worried about compromising the investigation. we are going back to treating crime. we don't know who changed the talking points to take al-qaeda references out of the talking points given susan rice three weeks before the election. we don't know anything. i don't want to hold up but i will until we get to the bottom of benghazi. in case the administration is listening to this program you are not going forward on these nominations until you share with the congress with really happened in benghazi. >> shannon: do you have support across the aisle at all for the proposition? i'm sure there are democrats who would also like answers to that question. >> i would be shocked if the democratic party would not at least join in the effort to find out what the president did during the attack, who did change the talking points. why are we now you back to a pre9/11 model of where the fbi can't talk to the cia. i hope they are interested in that. >> shannon: have you been given any timeline for the investigations wrapping up?
f.b.i. agent levinson who disappeared there in 2007. the "associated press" report the high quality of the images sent anonymously to his family two years ago led to the conclusion. iran denied any involvement. the administration begins a new gun control effort. we will talk about it with the fox all-stars when we come back. living with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis means living with pain. it could also mean living with joint damage. help relieve the pain and stop the damage with humira, adalimumab. for many adults with moderate to severe ra, humira is clinically proven to help relieve pain and stop joi damage. so you can treat more than just the pain. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal events, such as infections, lymphoma, or other types of cancer, have happened. blood, liver and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worseng heart failure have occurred. before starting humira, your doctor should test you for tb. ask your doctor if you live in or have been to a region where certain f
. >> the president has committed that we will find justice in this case. we will see justice in this case, but the f.b.i. has to do this right. it is there business and we supported them in their business. >> reporter: went to the f.b.i., we are not commenting either, they said. >> it's proven to be a tough investigation? >> it's a question whether the libyans are unwilling to be a real partner in this investigation. the problem in benghazi is that it is still run by the militias who was key to overthrowing the former libyan leader, moammar khadafy and it's a problem for the libyan government to get any answers there. they sent the official in charge of security in benghazi was assassinated two months of the attack on the u.s. consulate. the libyans sent an investigator to look into that murder, he was kidnapped on sunday. >> shep: jonathan, hunt, thank you. >> questions over the attack could delay the confirmation of the president's pick to lead the c.i.a. a top senator is calling to hold up the confirmation for john brennan. senator lindsay graham accuses the white house of stonewalling the details of
in december, for several hours it is reported by the fbi. we have no word what came out of that. his lawyer all along denied involvement. said his client was only in libya on a construction job. so overnight he was conditionally released by authorities in tunisia. they say for lack of evidence. he is still suspected however, of possible involvement in a terror organization, bill. bill: where does that leave the u.s. now on this investigation? anywhere? >> reporter: well, by all accounts, bill, it really does not look too much advanced since we were last in benghazi in october. one report says it is totally stalled. another report says the probe has not resulted in a single person being charged. at that time time we were talking a few dozen people being questioned but apparently what we saw in benghazi is still the situation there now. security is a problem. militias are strong. attacks on the security forces supposed to be investigating this attack on the consulate seems to be more the norm. there was one arrest, one person being held in relation to a possible terror group in key owe, egypt
the libyans or the f.b.i. the agents didn't allow for this. today surprisingly his lawyer appeared before a judge and said there was insufficient evidence to hold him and he was subsequently released even though members of congress and others have said they believe he was involved in the attack. so it's really raised questions not only about his case but where the investigation broadly stands nearly four months after the attack libyan authorities say that they have had a problem arresting people that while they have suspects they have -- the authorities are afraid to arrest people because of their ties to the militias and so this case really raises broader questions about the status of the investigation into the attack that killed ambassador stevens and three other americans. >> i want to get to those broader questions but a logistical one first hichlt is it that a tunisian ends up being a suspect and he's being held in tunis for an attack that allegedly occurred in libya. >> according to the investigators we've spoken to there were upwards of 70 people involved in that attack and they we

of a former fbi agent van fishing in iran five years ago. robert levinson disin 2007. family is releasing disturbing new pictures sent from whomever is holding him, we believe. there is a "america's newsroom." i'm bill hemmer. good morning, martha. martha: good to see you. i'm martha maccallum. intelligence officials believe iran is holding him as a bargaining chip essentially, something tehran vehemently denies at this point. the new pictures show a haggard levinson than in earlier pictures. this sign says help me, we must be excruciating for his wife christine. she released the pictures to urge the government to do more and not give up hope. >> diplomatically it takes a long time for each diplomatic request to go through all the channels. i know over the course of all these years that the government and the state department have tried to do that but have been unsuccessful. i feel there needs to be more attention to the case and that's why i'm putting the pictures out and trying to get everyone to, to be reminded that bob is still missing. bill: so will it help? david lee miller live in
is the f.b.i. as the consecutive order to lead the defense against cyber terrorism but companies have come up with ways to thwart attacks. favorite maneuver to feed wrong information to the hackers to make it doubted what they are dealing with, it confuses them and renderers what they get worthless. this is one effort to combat china and russia who is suspected of bringing down critical infrastructure in the united states. >> if this was physical world and paratroopers descended over silicon valley and guys repelled down ropes and went in and grabbed computers and ran out, there would be missiles flying but it happens every day in the cyber security space. where they come and steal everything and off to some other country they go. >> that intellectual property could include plans for weapons systems and products, track is torsion is one target. computer chips and anything that makes america competitive. the sophisticated software that attacks our critical infrastructure is hidden on home computers every day with american citizens to one-day strike. but the better answer the experts say is
're not going to see a ban on military weapons in civilian hands because how would he enforce it? the fbi would have to go out and start arresting people. >> and again to the point here that john made, you got to, you can enforce what you have br you start to add new things. thanks very much to both of you. now, let's talk to a lawmaker with a plan of his own to stop gun violence. senator richard blumenthal of connecticut. senator, great to talk to you. it's been a while and i'm glad to see you. you're proposing a bill on ammunition background checks and i want to talk about that in a moment, but first, i want to talk about this issue. there are a lot of gun laws in america. brookings has put the number at 300. some have said it's as high as 20,000, but a department of justice study found that 80% of inmates obtained their guns illegally. so 80% of inmates for gun laws obtained their guns illegally. isn't the first thing to do to enforce the laws we have? >> absolutely right. terrific point and it's a point that i make constantly because my background is in law enforcement. i was attorney gener
hearing for the accused dark knight hearing james holmes. yesterday f.b.i. agents described the deadly holmes left for police in his apartment. he set his computer to blast music hoping the police would be lured into his apartment. >> it's upsetting. it's sick. how can you be okay with that? you had months. >>brian: the f.b.i. revealing holmes spent months buying bullets and body armor. >>gretchen: deputies looking more like matadors now. [inaudible] >>gretchen: a bunch of bulls crashed in florida. three got loose. one was especially aggressive. the deputy managed to dodge that attack. minutes later a bull charged another deputy and hit him head on. he's okay. >>steve: remember this guy? a guy so drunk he had to be duct taped to his plane seat? now a video emerged of him. you can see flight attendants ripping off the tape and placing it over the man's mouth. that's not smart if he's drunk. the 46-year-old got a little too rowdy during the flight after throwing back bottles of whiskey and schnapps. he was on his way to visit his phian say. she -- to visit his fiancee. she must be very p
. he was the only prisoner. the fbi, i'm told, passed questions to his questioners or interrogators, the locals, but never had direct access to him, and he was released supposedly from lack of hard evidence. does this mean we have no leads on what happened in benghazi, and when will the committee hear from hillary clinton? will it be after the inauguration? >> i had some very good conversation with her chief of staff, and certainly senator menendez, the chairman of the committee. my sense is, andrea, that her hearing probably will take place the morning of the 22nd. i think they feel she's going to be healthy enough to come in that day. if that were to occur, and, again, this is senator menendez's decision, we could move very quickly, maybe even that afternoon to senator kerry's hearings and have those right after. my sense is the process that most of us would like to see could well take place, and i actually sense especially in talking to her chief just in the last few days that she's anxious to want to come up and testify on benghazi, and i think that hes an important thing for he
resistance he agreed to an fbi interrogation. no comment from the fbi on the substance of that. his lawyers say he was in libya at the time but he was on a construction job. sources say while he is freed he has to remain in the tunisian capital, tunis, he is still charged with suspected involvement after terror organization, joon. jon: he is the only suspect arrested where does that leave the u.s. in this >> reporter: the fbi confirmed to me they have an ongoing investigation and they have agents on the ground in lib a they can't say much more than that. by all accounts this probe is not much more advanced since we were in benghazi in october. one report says it is totally stalled. another says no one has been charged and that all suspects remain on the loose. the problem it appears very little cooperation on the ground in libya. we saw it in benghazi. security remains a big issue. militias are still strong. they are doing attacking of people that should be doing the investigating. so you see the problems. one suspect was questioned in december in cairo with possible links, both to the atta
of a former fbi agent who was kidnapped in iran has released a new series of images of her husband. robert levinston is shown draped in chains in what appears to be a mock prison uniform. he holds a sign which reads, help me. he was kidnapped while on a business trip to iran back in 2007. the family says the u.s., though, is not putting enough pressure on iran to deal with the case. >>> record temperatures in southern australia have cooled slightly this morning, dropping below 100 degrees for the first time in days. that small consolation to firefighters battling to put out fires that have consumed more than 300,000 acres in the last day alone. details from the bbc's nick bryant. >> reporter: the fires are being fanned by ferocious winds and some of the highest temperatures the state has ever witnessed. four large regions are being placed at a highest state of alert, catastrophic. it means the fires are uncontrollable and fast moving. at ground level, we saw for ourselves how terrifying the fire fronts can be. this is one of the state's main roads, the prince's highway. too dangerous for t
interviewed. there were clues in the fbi. the fbi did not talk to the cia. we came up with a model that fixed the pentagon. the pentagon used to have the services staffing and fighting separate wars. they would equip themselves separately. we decided to do what the military did. a joint command was created. he can come from any military service. they now trained and equipped to gather. -- togetherthe dni is the joint commander across 16 intel agencies. he leverage is their strength to produce intel products. that is the backbone of how we get intelligence to policy makers and that has dramatically improved. on the fusion centers, that is a different thing. those are local centers that have gone up to serve local law enforcement. they pull together national intelligence streams that they get from the homeland security department or the fbi with streams of local intelligence and a share it. the homelands department has tried to insist on privacy in these agencies and provide some financial support. this is a work in progress. some of them worked very well. one in los angeles works very well. ot

harzi, again had been arrested and held for several months. the fbi actually interrogated him back in late december. but as a witness to the attack on benghazi, not necessarily a prime suspect. when caveat to his release is he does have to remain near the capital of tunisia in case the court needs to get healed of 4i78. some of the cameras at the consulate did capture of the faces of some people, but very few have you questioned as suspects, primarily because the libyan government is to weak and some of the militia groups that may have been involved are very, very strong in that country. there's been a lot of criticism, you know, that president obama promised during the campaign to bring the killers of ambassador chris stevens to justice. obviously that hasn't happened yet. even though these are very different attacks, when you look back historically, the attack on the "uss cole" took about two years to get an arrest in that case. khalid sheikh mohammed was arrested about a year after the attacks on september 11th. so sometimes those arrests and investigations do take time, but one
debate, the fbi says background checks for firearms has soared some 39% in one month's time and that they hit a record high in the the month of december. while the government does not track how many guns are actually sold there are anecdotal reports from gun store owners and manufacturers that firearms are flying off the shelves. major manufacturer suggests that that trend is being reflected in their world as well and the background checks of course support that notion. and now to a murder mystery surrounding the death of a lottery winner. chicago resident kahn hit the jackpot last summer winning a million dollars on a scratch-off tickets. friends and family say he was ecstatic and 24 hours after state officials issued him a check for the winnings, police say kahn suddenly died a now, after initially they said it was of natural causes, they say in fact he was the victim of cyanide poisoning. trace gallagher has more, trace? >> reporter: and this one, megyn, caught the medical examiner off guard. when he bought that lottery ticket he just returned from a hajj pilgrimage, exce
